Festival At The Edge is back, and in an exciting new home... Hopton Court sits discreetly on the edge of the hamlet of Hopton Wafers, between Ludlow and Kidderminster. Set in parkland, amidst 1800 acres of beautiful Shropshire countryside, visitors enjoy exhilarating views from the house and gardens. The house dates from 1776 and is attributed to the architect John Nash, whilst Humphry Repton was responsible for laying out the beautiful grounds and parkland. It provides a beautiful setting for Festival at the Edge.
Festival at the Edge is the oldest storytelling festival in England and has something for everyone. A weekend of fantastic storytelling, tall tales, terrific tellers, music and more… surrounded by breathtaking views of Hopton Court, and the Cleobury Mortimer countryside. A packed programme of events tailored for all age groups, over a weekend that is unique in the festival calendar. It’s not just stories though. There’s a Hobson’s Brewery Bar, craft stalls, fantastic food, and camping.
From Friday to Sunday, there is always a choice of something on offer – the best international storytellers in performance, music, comedy and related arts. There are practical workshops, story rounds and informal music sessions for you to join in. As a family-friendly event, there is a children’s festival that runs throughout the festival weekend, mixing specially booked children’s performers with performers from the main festival.
